Answer

Paper dictionaries are available in all three libraries.  Most dictionaries are reference materials and are not allowed to be checked out.  There are a few available in the circulating collection that can be checked out.  The library collection includes general dictionaries to dictionaries specific to certain subjects such has law, health, etc.  Online dictionaries are also available from our Library Web page. Click on the tab Articles & Databases, click on Databases by Subject, and under the subject Dictionaries, Foreign, you will see links to the dictionaries.  Some specialized databases also include dictionaries.  For example the nursing databases include medical dictionaries.  If you have any questions, please contact a reference librarian at your campus library.
